This is a story so rich with important moral lessons and vivid storytelling, that it could have only been conceived while residing in a rural Thai Buddhist temple. In this charming tale of hope and compassion, best friends, Clarence and Karuna, embark on a mission to rescue a one-legged rooster from a crabby woodcutter. The two friends experience empathy and compassion in their loving quest to restore the rooster's health and happiness. Throughout the story, Clarence is supported by the loving guidance of a wise old fish, who visits him in his dreams and imparts to him the importance of kindness and compassion. Brilliantly illustrated by Jade. F. Lee, this charming tale encourages young readers to live with a heart of loving-kindness and compassion.
